Kingston FC schedule released, first game this Sunday!

Kingston FC held a press conference at Richardson Stadium on the Queen's West Campus this afternoon where they announced their schedule for the season in the Canadian Soccer League. Co-owner and president, Joe Scanlon stated that the team was aiming for a top three finish, while fellow co-owner and chairman Lorne Abugov corrected him, suggesting that they were aiming for a top-two spot.

Kingston FC opens their season this Sunday, May 5 with a home game against Brampton City United, with the first division team kicking off at 1pm and the reserve game kicking off at 3:15pm at the West Campus turf field.
There will be 12 teams in the CSL's first division this year and 9 in the reserve division. Kingston FC's plan is to play those players who were unable to play in the first division game in the reserve game that follows. The schedule is heavily front-loaded with home games, with seven home games out of their first ten games, while the season finished with eight of twelve games on the road.

Kingston FC home games will be played primarily on Sunday afternoons at the Queen's West Campus turf field with the first team kicking off at 1pm and the reserve game at 3:15pm. There are three exceptions to this, the first being the weekend of June 1st/2nd when they will be playing on Saturday evening at 5pm and 7:15pm against Niagara United in order to take advantage of the Kingston Outdoor Senior Soccer Tournament taking place that same weekend. The second and third are on the weekends of the Cataraqui Clippers Ambassador Cup Tournament on the weekends of July 6th/7th (Girls) and 20th/21st (Boys) when they will be playing Saturday evening at 5:00pm and 7:15pm against Toronto Croatia and the Serbian White Eagles respectively.

Kingston FC plans to have a small canteen available for most games and will also have merchandise available at the games.
